Treatments for Vaginal Laser Treatments for Pelvic Floor Restoration
Laser devices are increasingly being used to treat various pelvic floor disorders. The laser causes the production of new connective tissue in the vagina (collagen) and the achieved effect is the thickening of the mucosa and the connective tissue of the vagina and its growth. Laser treatment results are gradual, and therefore a series of treatments should be scheduled until the desired result is achieved. Vaginal laser treatments are currently used for three main purposes:
- To treatment medical problems:
Vaginal laser treatments for medical indications are performed in cases of vaginal dryness due to menopause (atrophy), recurrent vaginal infections and pain during sexual intercourse due to various reasons. Laser treatment can also be used to improve light incontinence when exerting effort and to treat persistent irritable bladder symptoms.
- In non-medical indications: Vaginal Rejuvenation These treatments include vaginal laxity correction due to both childbirth and age, as well as vaginal tightening, vaginal enhancement, and enhancing sensation during sexual intercourse.
- Cosmetic Laser Treatments:
To improve the appearance of the lips and vagina.
How is the treatment performed?
The treatment is pain-free and does not require anesthesia. The recovery period is very short and the risks are minor. For these reasons many women choose to undergo laser therapy instead of or before drug treatment or a surgical procedure. The procedure itself includes an initial meeting with you to assess your complaints and to conduct a vaginal examination. This is followed by a series of 3 treatments (once a month), each treatment lasting about 30 minutes. Maintenance treatments will be prescribed as needed.
What to expect after treatment?
Return to routine is immediate and does not involve any pain or limitations.
It should be noted that this is considered a medical procedure, in all respects, including the use of various devices suitable for the different medical indications. It therefore requires knowledge and experience of a physician (preferably a urology specialist) who has been properly trained to perform the procedure.
